You don't need to be a scientist to know that the Earth is round or that 2 + 2 = 4. So why are some scientific discoveries, like the geologic age of the Earth, discounted by so many people? On this episode, Dr. Phil Plait, Slate's "Bad Astronomy" blogger, joins us to discuss how science is presented in the media and why people sometimes believe very strange things.
